What is a star ruby?
Effectively its a cabochon or convex stone that catches the light in such a way to make a crossed section of reflected light.
As the stone is moved so does the star, a little like a facet adding interest to the stone as it catches the light.
Star stone are normally only ruby's and sapphires you can get other effect such as cats eyes in moonstones and agates similar semi precious stones of course sapphire and ruby are precious stones which is a measure of hardness not value.
